Pack Meeting 10/18/12

Looking forward to seeing ya’ll this Thursday for our upcoming Pack meeting. Pack Meetings are the third Thursday of every month unless otherwise specified. Please have your cub wear his Class A uniform. Don’t forget to help your Scout work on the Rain Gutter Regatta kit that was handed out at the last Pack Meeting. Since we’ll be sailing the boats this weekend, I thought we’d work on some of our seaman skills at the Pack meeting. Ahoy mates!


Rain Gutter Regatta 10/20/12

The race starts at 12 pm on the Brykerwoods Playground. Check in starts at 11:00 am. I’ll be posting a Rallyhood sign up for leaders and parents who would like to assist with the race. As always the Pack could use an extra hand in support of our events. Don’t fret if you haven’t started. Sandpaper, glue, and paint (optional) are all that’s needed to put the kit together. Let me know if you have questions.



Popcorn orders and money can be brought to this week’s meeting. If you do not yet have all of your items, you may deliver them to the Cub Scout mailbox in the Bryker Woods school office throughout the week of Oct. 22nd. Hard deadline for money is the morning of Friday October 26th. Checks should be made payable to Pack 9. I will submit the Pack’s order over the weekend. Please remember that our goal is 100% participation at the $50 level, either via an order for popcorn or a Military Donation. Please send questions to the Kernel: Get poppin’!


Fall Carnival 10/27/12

Pack 9 is at the ready to assist with recycling efforts at the School carnival. What this means is that our Scouts and parents are encouraged to help in the management of these materials. There are stations that need attending. I’ll be on site to help and with details about our responsibilities. Please have your cub wear their Class B uniforms (Pack 9 or other Cub Scout tee shirt) if not in costume.


Webelos Woods 11/09-11/12

CALLING ALL WEBELOS! Attend Webelos Woods on November 9-11 at Pioneer Farms, 10621 Pioneer Farms Drive, Austin TX 78754. During this great outdoor activity you'll participate in Boy Scout skills and games, see troops demonstrating boy-led programs and get a cool Webelos Woods patch! This is an overnight camping opportunity – Friday and/or Saturday night, rain or shine!




USS Texas 11/17/12

November camping is going to be awesome! We are booked on the USS Texas for a day tour of the ship and a sleep over. I’ll have more details at the Pack Meeting tomorrow night!
